Toddler iPad addiction requires psychological therapy. How about better parenting?

Vyralize: Experts in the UK have warned parents that allowing toddlers and children to use tablets for several hours per day could have “dangerous” long term effects. (Gadgets)

If it gets to that point, take the kids away. It's that simple.

Just don't give them tablets or smart phones, when I got board when I was a kid I would play with Lego, draw, read a book or just use my imagination to keep myself occupied.

If I was spending too much time on my Atari Lynx or Amiga they were switched off and taken away.

Also for £16,000 for a 28 day course to cure your kid is a con, for half the price and half the time I could cure your kid of this addiction. All I do is slap the parent on the side of the head every time they hand there kid a phone and I tell the child no you can't have the phone, now go play.

Toddler iPad addiction requires psychological therapy.

I think there is an app for that.

Toddlers get "addicted" to everything fun, even the first time they use it. Give a kid an iPad for the first time and then take it away and watch the tantrum. Take a kid to the park and watch them scream when it's time to leave. It's the parent's job to deal with it, paying some shrink thousands of dollars to do it for you is a scam

Clam shell phone user and proud of it.

Give kid an old transformer toy or a set of lego's and call it a day.

An old Transformer toy? But the kid will get addicted. No, better to lock him in his room with no stimulation.

they might make a super breed of human in the future you never know. mutations are good.

but this isnt as bad as they are making it seem

kids in the 50's 60's 70's... were all addicted to something at one point.
